    I have a software which generates excel report with some specific data. The excel file format is .xls (old 2003 format)
    The data are in the forms like differenct cells contains numeric, string and alphanumeric data.
    The data per cell for specific input data is fixed.
    I need to retrive specific cell data using shell or perl script(Unix).
    Any one have any such script available or help me create one if has the idea about?

    There is lots of information about reading and writing excel with PHP. Google "php excel".
    Otherwise, you could open and save the excel file as tab delimited, and read it with ksh or bash.
